Banned jockeys “ransacked luxury Airbnb with blood and wine”
FOUR jockeys are said to have ransacked a luxury Airbnb with “blood and wine”.
And it has been claimed that superstar Jamie Kah – one of the runners at the center of the storm – lived on and off on the property due to “relationship difficulties” with her fiance.
Kah was one of four jockeys banned and fined by race officials for breaking strict lockdown rules.
They all partied in the £ 650,000 villa – which costs £ 266 a night to rent – located just south of Melbourne, Australia.
The ‘mind-boggling’ violation of Covid – a violation of Victoria’s ‘stay home’ message – has rocked Australian racing and the image of superstar Kah.
The 25-year-old – who is engaged to fellow jockey Clayton Douglas – has taken the sport by storm Down Under, riding more than 100 winners this season and racking up career earnings of just under $ 23.5million. pound sterling.
But a new report claimed she was renting the villa because of her relationship “on the rocks”.
The Sun Herald in Australia, Kah had lived on the property part-time due to “relationship difficulties” with Douglas.
She had published an article on the celebration of her engagement no later than last January.
Kah was banned for three months and fined £ 3,000 by bosses – but it could turn out to be much more costly.
She – along with fellow racers Ben Melham, Ethan Brown and Celine Gaudray – will now be forced to miss the lucrative Spring Racing Carnival, which was worth a potential salary of £ 160,000 to Kah.
The financial hammer blow comes as The Herald Sun reports that a cleaner on the property claimed it had been ransacked with “blood all over and wine stains.”
Several other workers were called in to clean up the mess and steam cleaners were needed to clean it up from top to bottom.
The cleaner reportedly said: “The place has been totally trashed, an absolute mess.
“There was blood all over the couch. The red wine looked like it had come through the house.”
Kah said after being banned and fined: “I want to apologize for my recent behavior in breaking government rules and the Covid race.
“I am deeply embarrassed and disappointed in myself.
“There is no excuse for what I did and I let myself down, my family and friends, the racing industry and all the Victorians doing the right thing in this lockdown.
“I deserve the sanction imposed by the stewards and I will take the time to reflect on my actions and their impact on so many people.”
A statement from Victoria Police said: “Officers were called to the Tallis Drive property following reports of a noise complaint at around 11:50 pm.
“Upon arrival, officers located six people inside, all allegedly outside their 5 km radius and in violation of the curfew.
“All were given a £ 3,000 infringement notice for breaching the Director of Health’s instructions.”
